  • The occurrence of a validated premature atherosclerotic CVD event in either a parent or a sibling is associated with an estimated twp-fold elevated risk for CVD, independent of other traditional risk factors.
  • Parental history of premature CHD is associated with increased burden of subclinical atherosclerosis in the coronary arteries and the abdominal aorta.
